These guys play it different because they make it easy on folks wanting to walk around town or head onto the ferry. You order and pay at the bar. They will find you if you stay or you can wait and take it to go. They are fast and still very good food. All the food is ready to walk out the door. We ate the smoked salmon clam chowder and decided that since that is how they roll we would try it. We took our chowder and walked around town. We enjoyed their new way of service and their options.

We thought we'd found a great place due to the location and the view, however, after our order never came after 45 minutes and we asked about it the barman who'd been serving us on the top level became very rude. The wait-staff seemed a bit clueless and then finally we ordered again to receive pretty marginal food. Pretty disappointing.

My family and I had just arrived in Friday Harbor and were enticed by the oysters being grilled just outside of the restaurant. We were disappointed as they were mushy and lacking flavor and texture. The clams were also disappointing--dry and equally tasteless. Probably okay for a burger or some fried fish but we would not go back.

We spent $68.01 for two cups of curdled cream chowder, two wilted Caesar salads, and two grilled pieces of Wild Coho. Major ripoff. The salmon had absolutely no taste except for the taste of their dirty greasy grill. I cannot believe this place even stays open. Guys, the ocean is 100' from your grille! You can do better! Next time, we go to Blue Water next door.

A little confusing in layout. The take-out area is at the entrance, and you place your order for drinks/food at the bar downstairs after sitting anywhere you like. The ordering system is a little chaotic so listen out for your name!

Decent quality seafood. Little shelter from the hot sun on the top deck. Clear away your own trays after you've eaten... you get the DIY gist.

I would strongly recommend the take-out BBQ oysters grilled at the front.
